Commissioned by designer Fritz Haeg, for his project at the Bernardi residence in Silverlake, CA. It’s walls are shaped by different rooms throughout the house that are perforated with circular windows. The 5’ x5’ x 14’ high grotto hosts a water feature, pool, and 5 different vegetation zones in what once was a closet. Programmable LED lighting has the capability of fluctuating the environmental lighting conditions. The terrarium is a central feature to the house, providing a visual preface to the myriad of architectural surprises they experience throughout the house and it’s grounds.
